The Centre for Christian Studies

A national theological school of the Anglican and United Churches

The Centre for Christian Studies is a Canadian theological school that has been training women and men for ministry since 1892. Its roots are in the deaconess training schools of the Anglican and United Churches of Canada. Students on a path toward diaconal ministry – a ministry of compassion and justice-seeking grounded in the example of Jesus who “did not come to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45) – appreciate CCS’s values of community, diversity, creativity, and right relationships.

Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, CCS provides programs to students from across Canada who are training to be diaconal ministers. We also provide theological programs for those seeking new skills for their life in faith, and for ministers seeking continuing education. Most of our students come from the United Church of Canada or the Anglican Church of Canada, but we welcome students of all denominations.

The Centre for Christian Studies is committed to “living a theology of justice.”
